Believe

“Believe that you can run farther or faster. Believe that you’re young enough, old enough, strong enough, and so on to accomplish everything you want to do. Don’t let worn-out beliefs stop you from moving beyond yourself.” – John Bingham

All that we are requires faith. Not just in a religious sense, but also… self-confidence, trust, power, courage, perseverance, ambition. We must believe that we are doing the right thing. We must believe in our actions, in our thoughts, in our feelings, in our destiny.

You are what you believe in. I am what I believe in. We all are the by-products of our beliefs.

This is extremely important. What you believe in is going to determine how your future will look like. Your thoughts will shape your world for you. There is no reality other than the one we interpret ourselves.

That is all.

Believe that you are good enough.

Believe that you can do better.

Believe that you can…

And you WILL.

How to conquer the world

world“The measure of who we are is what we do with what we have.” – Vince Lombardi

I’ve wanted to conquer the world ever since I was six. That was when I began to create this grand vision about myself: that one day I would become the richest man in the world. Of course, over the years that vision changed. But still, I want to conquer the world.

But the thing is, you can’t conquer the world by way of force, by manipulating, by intimidating. That is a lesson that every dictator learned the hard way, either by being defeated or by having his legacy destroyed after his death.

Words and ideas

rw1No matter what happens in my life, there’s one thing I believe in with all my heart: words can shape the world. I believe in the right words said at the right time, I believe in reading someone’s words and deciding a different outcome for yourself.

That’s one of the reasons I write. That maybe once in a while my words offer someone comfort or hope or inspire them to strive for more. I write for someone half a world away to feel less lonely in their thoughts and feelings. Continue reading

Prints, prints, prints

Who we are…

“What we can or cannot do, what we consider possible or impossible, is rarely a function of our true capability. It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are.” – Anthony Robbins

The realists will say this is a lie, but we are what we think we are. What we consider to be out of our reach starts as a simple thought. We are the ones who create invisible boundaries.

In other words, we convince ourselves that we are this and this and that, and that’s it.

“I’m a writer.”

“I’m a singer.”

“I’m an accountant.”

You tell people you feel lonely, you tell people you don’t like going out, you tell people you’re a pessimist. You think and you think and you define yourself and you’re only going to act according to your definition.

I’m trying to challenge myself to change. To be exactly who I want to be, to be more than I ever thought I could be.

I urge you to do the same.

To tell yourself over and over again that you can be anyone you want to be, that you can accomplish anything.

I ask you to have faith. To believe. To act on those beliefs.

Of course, your mind will rebel. Your mind will try to reduce you to who you used to be. Your mind will try to simplify who you are as a person.

“But you can’t do that…” your mind will say. “It’s impossible.”

Well, if someone else did it, then it’s possible.

And if no one else ever accomplished what you’re dreaming of accomplishing, then you can convince your mind that you’ll be the first.

That’s what makes the difference.

Greatness is choosing to believe that you are good enough to get what you want. No matter what.

Greatness is a choice.

Greatness is the decision to fight against anything or anyone who tries to reduce you to a stick figure.

You more than that.

You are more than one of eight billion.

You are one of a kind.

Who you are, who you decide to be, it’s always been and always will be your choice.

“I challenge you to make your life a masterpiece. I challenge you to join the ranks of those people who live what they teach, who walk their talk.” – Anthony Robbins

Commitment

Once upon a time was a fighter. He was  the undefeated champion, and a journalist asked him what was his secret. The fighter smiled and said that every single time he went into the ring he was prepared to die. Either he was victorious, or he’d die.

Passion

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”Howard Thurman

Ask yourself this simple question: what makes that little muscle inside your chest beat? I mean, really, really beat. Insanely strong, in such a way that you can feel it furiously pumping blood inside your body. What’s your passion? What do you live for? What are you willing to die for? Continue reading
